Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Historic Preservation Tuesday: Open access for new JAPA issue on historic preservation policy

The Journal of the American Planning Association covers all aspects of planning policy. The current issue, 82:2 (2016) is a special thematic issue on Historic Preservation and Planning addresses a wide range of historic preservation planning issues and the American Planning Association has made that particular issue open access, so that everyone has access to the articles.

I haven't had a chance yet to read the issue, but I intend to, and will do a follow up entry on the content, as the articles tend to focus on issues of tension/contention.

It's timely, considering that 2016 is the 50th anniversary of the passage of the National Historic Preservation Act, and there are a number of activities, conferences, etc., this year marking it, under the rubric of Preservation 50.
